What makes this house unique

Very quiet. Noon whistle in the distance every day. Wonderful place to think and/or relax and/or recharge batteries but still stay connected to the business world.

Great water views in a quiet location

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 spent four days at Heron Cove in July, 2017. The house is comfortable and definitely has room for everyone to spread out. The views from the deck are wonderful, especially with the osprey nest right across the way. Chicks in the nest, parents busy feeding them, what a show! This was our first time in the Boothbay Harbor area, and we loved it. The botanical garden right down the road is amazing, we did a couple of the hikes in the Boothbay Regional Land Trust, spent a couple of afternoons walking around Boothbay Harbor, watched the Fourth of July fireworks from the Oceanarium lawn, and took the Hardy Boat Tour from New Harbor to view puffins.

The bathroom renovation looks great and the bedrooms are comfortable. My kids enjoyed playing ping pong in the basement, which has a bit of a musty smell. Wish some of the bushes in the front were cut back so we had a better view of the water, and access to the water (a simple dock) would be great. I know the river is tidal, so that presents challenges.

Plenty of room in a lovely location

  • 3 of 5

Five of us enjoyed a winter weekend at this property. There was abundant sleeping and living space, a big kitchen with ample storage and room to spread out, and a great table to gather around for meals and games. The area is stunningly beautiful, and each morning we watched the birds in the water out front, including a pair of bald eagles cruising the area. It was a very easy drive to Hannafords supermarket, a YMCA (for those of us needing their gym fix), and Boothbay Harbor. Lisa was very nice to work with, very responsive and helpful, and even offered a late checkout when she realized we were leaving on Superbowl Sunday. The only reason I'm not rating this a 5 is there seems to be a mold issue. 3 of the 5 people in our group reacted to it and needed to take Benadryl or use their asthma inhalers with frequency. Otherwise, it was a perfect stay and we really enjoyed it!

Owner's Response: The mold/mildew problem is mostly in one of the bathrooms and that issue is being addressed as we speak - the bathroom is being totally renewed with all new walls, fixtures, cabinets, etc. Thank you for bring that issue to our attention. Lisa

We really enjoyed it here!

  • 5 of 5

We came here and found a beautiful home, a gorgeous view of the water, and all of the amenities we wanted and needed. We could spread out in the house, and it was very cozy and nice.

very nice, quiet

  • 4 of 5

This was perfect for a quiet, off-season week spent working on a novel. Neighbors were nearly invisible. The house has full amenities, heat, beautiful view, few distractions, a big enough yard for kids to run around in, tide-pooling at low tide, and proximity to Boothbay Harbor when you want restaurants and tchotchkes. Good-sized grocery store 5 minutes away. Patronize the good folks at Red Cup Coffee House. Enjoy Italian food at Port, and try the haddock chowder at Oak Street Provisions.

I had trouble finding the place because I arrived when it was dark and missed a key turn, but during the day it is easy to find, and very close to the botanical gardens (closed off-season).

July vacation

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at Heron Cove and for the most part were very pleased with the house and surrounding area. The house was equipped as stated except for a lack of good size bowls and dish towels. There were plenty of bath towels and bed linens. Our main complaint was the cleanliness of the house. Lisa if you are paying someone to come in and clean between guests than I suggest you find another company. The black mold around the windows and on the fridge seal was not good. My son upon arrival had to start taking medicine for this. I would suggest a dehumidifier for the basement as the dampness and odor made it impossible to stay down there. Also there was a broken rocking chair on the porch and you have let the bushes grow so that it was hard to get down to the water, (not like picture). The house otherwise fit our needs and it was quiet and nice to be able to let the kids play outside without worrying about them going out into the road. Neighbors were nice enough to let us put our kayak in from their property. It was very relaxing, with lots of wonderful sights. The view from the deck is beautiful. Would recommend this home if the few things I mentioned were addressed

Hi Lisa, I just wanted everyone to know this house was so quiet and peaceful. You can walk to a small bridge that overlooks the water. It was wonderful here and not far down the road is a small country store that everyone talked and talked with you about where you were from and if you are having a great time. We did a lot of site seeing and down time in the evenings. Thanks again for your hospitality.
